Different Types of Sanitary Valves Available

You can find the applications of sanitary valves in many different kinds of industries such as in drinks, food and pharmaceutical industries etc.

Various steel parts that are used for making of the valve are made out of stainless steel that are acid-proof and their sealing parts use the material that can be either polytetrafluoroethylene material or food silicone rubber that conforms to the standard of food hygiene.

Following are various types of sanitary valves that are top varieties available in the market.

  • Sanitary ball valves

These valves are very widely used in wine, beverage, food, dairy products, pharmaceutical, fine chemicals and biological and also many other industries.

  • Sanitary butterfly valves

Since we all know that many of the sanitary butterfly valves usually are of stainless-steel make, it is useful as well as necessary for all food and beverage making industries to use these sanitary butterfly valves so that the media can maintain security of food and water.

  • Sanitary check valves

Few variants of traditional disk type of check valve available that eliminates valve body entirely. Here the valve features a fluoropolymer disk assembly which will be mounted in the place of standard Tri-Clamp gaskets.

  • Sanitary diaphragm valves

These valves are also widely used in various food, diary and many other industries. To further reduce the dead legs and also meet the increasing necessity of shrinking overall envelope of the valve assemblies, the block body was developed.

  • Sanitary shutoff/diverter valves

When these sanitary valves are closed, fluid will pass through all the tube and virtually there is no dead leg available between weir and tube.

  • Sanitary regulating valves

In order to divert the process for doing sampling, these sanitary regulating valves are preferred where two assembly types will be typically used.

  • Sanitary sample valves with gauges

These sanitary sample valves with gauges are extensively found use in pharmaceutical as well as biological engineering industries.

  • Sanitary constant pressure valves

Also, these sanitary valves are perhaps the most commonly used valve assembly that have sterile access and also GMP valve assembly.

  • Sanitary air/pressure relief valves

These sanitary valves have sterile access and they commonly feature main valve that is mounted in horizontal while main valve of GMP valve will be mounted in vertical.

  • Sanitary tank bottom valves

These types of sanitary valves are having the top entry with design of weir type diaphragm that allowed valve designers for starting machining the multiple valve weirs and put them in a single stainless-steel block.
